Charming French-style hotel
Really charming place with a friendly and helpful staff. Located in easy walking distance from a lot of good spots in San Francisco.

Great place
The hotel is in a great location for exploring the city. The room was small but very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Considering this is an older building we couldn't hear any noise from the rooms around us. We had a very large, modern walk in shower in the bathroom with good quality towels. There was also tea and coffee provided in the lobby and breakfast was available in the basement restaurant for $12 if we chose to eat there which was quite a fair price compared to restaurants in the area. We would stay there again if back in the city.

Great style, comfort, value and location
Cronell Hotel du France was a great find. It’s a beautiful boutique hotel, loaded with impressionist art and French design. Super helpful people at the front desk. Nice location. Sweet deal for the price.

Good 6.0
First time in San francisco
I didn't like the fact that we booked a queen bed and got two double beds. The pillows smelled, and they should provide more towels.

Romantic but dated hotel
The service at Cornell hotel de France was amazing. The kindness and professionalism was above and beyond. The hotel was immensely old, and the elevator was slow and a little bit scary. It is an extremely old building and that dated feeling can really show through. Good water pressure, free coffee at all hours, would highly recommend if you don’t mind the old building. Within walking distance of many shopping centers and directly next to the cable-car line. Also close to China town. nice romantic place if you don’t mind how old it feels. The old factor did not effect the comfort factor. Key locks, not electronic locks.

Great - just skip breakfast
All in all.very good. Breakfast is definitely it's week point. Edible but not that enjoyable. Couldn't fault anything else.

Exceptional 10.0
Very cute, private and comfortable
The moment I arrived, I knew I would like the hotel. The front door remains locked at all times. You must be buzzed in or use your automatic remote to the key pad when your a guest. We (a group of 7 of us) were greeted warmly and I immediately felt comfortable. Due to our early arrival, our rooms weren’t ready, but our luggage was taken and locked safely in the storage room. Jo, who was fantastic gave us a marked city map and told of important tourist attractions. The best part, you walk out the hotel a few feet and can take a cable car directly to Fisherman’s Wharf. The rooms were small, but perfect. Clean French decor with a slight modern look to the room. Comfortable beds, extra blankets, WiFi and a new larger screen television. The dining room was extremely attractive and made you very comfortable. The breakfast hefty breakfast was delicious and only $12. I was very pleased and will definitely stay again when I visit the city. If you would prefer a smaller quaint hotel versus the large expensive name, this will be perfect for you.
